The highest elevation is 1600 and the lowest near the wet weather creek is 1560. At the South end of the property a water well has been drilled but not outfitted near what appears to be a phenomenal homesite with almost 360-degree views of the surrounding hills. Some of the local hills such as the Eckert Roughs, Smoothing Iron, Lime Peak, Man Mountain can be seen from the site. There are several others that are unnamed.The ranch is perimeter fenced and cross-fenced making 2 separate pastures. The house is surrounded by a yard fence.

Soils: Approximately 75% of the ranch is classified sandy loam. The North 40 or so acres is established Bermuda and there is quite a bit in the larger pasture to the South. As you get towards the Southern end, it gets rocky and there are some spectacular granite outcrops along with some quartz outcrops.

Water: Two ponds are on the Bar L that collect rain runoff. The Hickory Aquifer is shown to be underneath the property but at the time of this writing, there are no known irrigation wells. The ranch has 3 water wells with 2 being outfitted with electric submersible pumps. The other is capped.

Improvements: The cabin is very comfortable, charming, and suits its surroundings well. At approximately 1200 square feet, it has 2 bedrooms and 2 baths.
